If you knew you could recreate this Natural Garland Table Runner for your next dinner party without having to forage through your local forest it would make your day, right? Well, then put your hiking boots and garden gloves away because day = made. The garland featured in this Dinner Party post is compliments of the designer, Bhoke Manga of Paper Truffles. Today she’s sharing her sources and advice on how to “make it your own” so you too can recreate this look at home without much fuss.
The garland pictured above is Salal garland. The evergreen leaves are available year round and typically last between 20-30 days after cut. Bhoke says ” For a 5 foot long table we ordered 15 feet of garland from Whole Blossoms, so that we can double it to achieve a substantial width on the table and then have it cascade beyond the edges towards the ground. Looks quite dramatic this way.”
Once the pre-made garland arrived, she customized the look by buying tulips, white roses and baby breath at her local grocery store. Insert the flowers where you see fit and affix to the garland using a light wire like the ones you see here. Keep in mind, you can use whatever flowers you want here so get creative! If you’re looking for blossoms that are not as mainstream like Peonies, you can often find them at specialty grocery stores like Whole Foods.
Add ribbon (if you want) and you’re done!
